    How does one calculate these things? Parents, Grandparents, etc...?
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Great-grandparents, whatever.

    Maybe it would be more accurate to say what are the nationalities of your ancestors. /shrug

    Jewish? D'oh! Sorry, couldnt resist that one :dbanana Feel free to take a few potshots at me.

    As for myself, let's see...

    Lebanese on my mothers side, about a 25%. Don't know about any other part of her side though.

    On Daddy's side, Scottish mostly, some Irish and I guess a little German thrown in for flavor

    Born & raised in America. Three countries I know of that I'm a descendant of. Ireland, Poland, and Germany. And am a first generation Brooklyn exile. But thats where my heart still is.

    Good chance it has nothing to do with lineage. But whats that first paragraph mean? That I'm Muslim? :w00t

    No, it means that you're a pizza coated with Polish sausage and schnitzel eating, pipe-bomb blowing, gang whacking hoodlum who bends over and farts five times a day.

    Please, don't take what I'm saying seriously...

    Ok, you got me on that one :smoke
    I've enjoyed a pipe now and then, makes you feel like Sherlock Holmes or something.
    The first and last time I was at Disney World, actually it was Pleasure Island, my friends and I stopped by the cigar shop there and bought a couple of big fat stogies and smoked 'em on the way to the bars. Time to do that again I think
